That scratch was already there: California dealership wrecks customer's Corvette
More after the jump.
The employee was cited by the California Highway Patrol, who noted he was driving too fast for the conditions that caused the accident. The CHP stopped short, however, of citing him for reckless driving. The plot thickened, however, when Williams found an orange prescription bottle full of codeine acetominaphane under one of the seats.
Williams wants his Corvette replaced, or at least the repairs paid for and to be compensated for the car's lost value. The dealership, however, is only apparently willing to pay for the vehicle to be repaired (the Corvetteforum.com post is unclear on exactly what the dealership has agreed to do, if anything), which will take six weeks. Aside from posting his grievance on Corvetteforum.com, Williams has also filed complaints with Chevrolet and the Better Business Bureau. He claims a lawyer will cost him $5,000, though many forum members are urging him to just sue the dealership for damages and a new car. Mr. Williams, however, has asked any Corvette lover in ear shot to email the dealership's service manager, Lucian Freire, demanding something be done.
This is the worst situation in which a car enthusiast could find himself, and our piston-pumping hearts go out Williams and his wife, not to mention the true victim in all this, one Machine Silver Metallic Chevy Corvette.
